Hearthstone Mercenaries update

According to the announcement, Blizzard acknowledged that players are interested in learning more about Hearthstone Mercenaries. However, the developer needs more time to implement all of the planned content.

“As such, we’re now expecting Hearthstone Mercenaries to be released in Phase 2 of the Year of the Gryphon and won’t be quite ready to share details on the mode during the stream on July 1,” the announcement said.

However, fans of Hearthstone Mercenaries can look forward to an upcoming stream about the game mode. More details about the stream will come out in the fall as the broadcast date approaches.
